Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Thessalonians 3:4

_ _ we have confidence in the Lord — as “faithful” (2 Thessalonians 3:3). Have confidence in no man when left to himself [Bengel].

_ _ that ye both do — Some of the oldest manuscripts insert a clause, “that ye both have done” before, “and are doing, and will do.” He means the majority by “ye,” not all of them (compare 2 Thessalonians 3:11; 2 Thessalonians 1:3; 1 Thessalonians 3:6).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Thessalonians 3:1-5.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Thessalonians 3:4

We trust in the Lord concerning you — Thus only should we trust in any man.
